Baldwin raises twice as much as Vukmir over quarter
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin has outraised her Republican opponent state Sen. Leah Vukmir more than 2-to-1 for the most recent reporting period.
While outpacing Vukmir in fundraising, Baldwin has also had a consistent lead in polls leading up to the Nov. 6 election.
Filings with the Federal Election Commission show Baldwin raised $4.9 million in the latest period that ended Sept. 30 compared with $2.4 million for Vukmir.
Baldwin reported having $5 million cash on hand for the final weeks of the race, compared with just $1.4 million for Vukmir.
Vukmir released a new television ad Tuesday, featuring a woman with a rare lung disease who says Baldwin’s position on health care “is so radical it literally takes my breath away.”
Baldwin supports a Medicare-for-all plan while Vukmir wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
